YoBaby Yogurt Review & Giveaway CLOSED

YoBaby organic yogurt isn’t new to us, we’ve been buying it since my 5 year old was a baby.  We never actually stopped buying it.  My daughter still loves it, both for the taste and the cute babies on the package!
YoBaby also has codes on the lids for the Stonyfield Farms Reward Program.  The points add up quickly (the 6-packs or 32 ounce containers are 4 points I believe) and redemptions start at 25 points.  The rewards are pretty good too I think!  I got 2 free HappyBabyFood product coupons for 25 points!  If you register, you can also print coupons, I think they reset monthly.
The plain variety is new to me.  It seems to be the same as the Stonyfield Farms organic plain, whole milk yogurt we usually buy, but in different packaging.  I was able to find it at Whole Foods when I made the trip to get some of the Happy Baby Food items for my review, that I couldn’t find locally.

There’s no added sugar, and it’s so good with some fresh fruit mixed in, maybe a drizzle of agave nectar if the fruit is tart.  I believe it has the same active cultures as the Stonyfield Farms, which recommended most often for use as a homemade yogurt starter because of the active cultures.  It’s of course a bit more expensive per ounce than the big tub, but that’s to be expected.  It’s nice to be able to grab a 4 ounce container to take with us somewhere.  I just wish I could find them locally!

The YoBaby 6-packs also come in banana/vanilla, peach/pear and blueberry/apple varieties.

It does have added sugar, though there’s no HFCS or dyes.  The package states that the count includes natural milk sugar, I’d just like to know how many of the 12 grams are added.  Other yogurt marketed to kids has 13-18 grams of sugar in 4 ounces.  YoBaby is the only one (that I know of) made with whole milk, and I don’t know enough about milk to know whether that increases the natural sugar content when compared to low fat milk.

My favorite flavor is the apple, so I had to taste one (purely in the name of research of course!) since I haven’t had one in quite some time.

This is cream top yogurt.  This is what it looked like after being squeezed and manhandled (babyhandled?) by my son, prior to opening it.

Stir to mix and enjoy.  Mmm…heavenly.  At 110 calories in 4 ounces, it’s a bit higher in calories (and fat, but…duh) than light/low or no fat yogurt.  However, I don’t really enjoy the artificially sweetened, artificially flavored, thin stuff.  A 4 oz YoBaby is more filling and satisfying to me than a 6 oz. container of the “other stuff.”

Oh wait, this stuff was called YoBABY, right?  Oops.  It makes me want to make jokes like, “Yo’ Baby’s diaper is so fluffy…”  OK never mind!

Other products include Fruit and Cereal, drinkable yogurt, YoBaby Meals, YoKids Yogurt and YoKids Squeezers.

Anyway, one lucky blog reader will win two coupons for free YoBaby yogurt 4-packs, along with an Eric Carle growth chart!

>You want the truth–I eat the Stonyfield baby yogurt, not just my baby, it's so good! My favorite type I just discovered is Liberty Mediterranean! So think and creamy it's like a desert. I also love Rachels, especially the one with lavendar, for it's unusual flavor. My favorite bargain Yogurt is LaLa! It has big chunks of fruit, and their peach yogurt tastes EXACTLY like Odwalla (a yogurt voted the best peach by Real Simple) only it's so much less expensive–only $2 for a big tub (less than Yoplait and only slightly more than store brand).ecarian at yahoo dot com
